Any motorcycle aficionado have their own top 10 motorcycle helmets when riding their bike. They probably have something that they often use when going somewhere or for special occasions. However, riders might have to put their road trip on hold for a moment. With social distancing still in effect and the pandemic still causing economic turmoil, the government and health experts are strongly recommending its citizens to be vaccinated first.
Even after vaccinated, it is advice to keep following social distancing protocol to mitigate the virus and gradually lower the number of Covid-19 cases.
Types of Vaccines
At the moment, there are 3 major types of vaccines created for Covid-19. These are the mRNA, Protein Subunit and Vector vaccines. Only these vaccines are the ones that are recommended and authorized. To have a better idea of each type, keep on reading.
In this type of vaccine, it has material from the virus that started Covid-19. It is giving the host’s cells instructions on how to create harmless protein that’s unique to the virus. Once the cells have made copies of the said protein, it will destroy the genetic material introduced by the vaccine.
The body will begin to recognize that the protein shouldn’t be there at all. From that point forward, it will build B-lymphocytes and T-lymphocytes that’ll remember how to combat the virus which causes Covid-19, if infected in the future.
Protein Subunit Vaccine
With protein vaccine, it has harmless proteins of the virus that caused Covid-19 rather than the entire germ. Once it is injected, the body will begin to recognize that the protein must not be there and start building antibodies and T-lymphocytes. It will remember how to fight that virus if in case that we’re infected down the road.
This contains modified version of different virus instead of the one that caused Covid-19. In the shell of this modified virus, there’s material from the virus that started Covid-19 which is referred to as viral vector.
When it is inside the body, it gives instructions to the cells and make protein that’s unique to the virus that caused Covid-19. With these instructions, the cells will replicate the protein to fight it.Read More
